Re: White Substance on Exhaust Tip
Burning any oil? White buildup within the exhaust stream (exhaust tip, oxygen sensor, etc) is generally a sign of burning oil. That is the left over phosphor residue that is left when oil burns (that is what clogs O2 sensors and catalytic converters on vehicles that burn a lot of oil). Don't freak yet though. It could have another cause. Just monitor your oil use, if it is more then about a half quart in 5000 miles that is abnormal.
Yay for doing it by hand then! That will probably last about an hour tops.I was craving meat REALLY bad. plus, my mom gets really hot, so I was uncomfortable. So I have to really stretch.
